"Provocative....Bizarre....Graysmith's taut narrative brings the horror back with jolt upon jolt." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"Will fascinate true-crime readers." (Library Journal)
What a let-down. After listening to hours and hours of details on a possible suspect, the author would just say, "I knew it wasn't him," and move on. Then the case he made for who he thinks was the Zodiac is so thin that I wasn't convinced. I was really disappointed. I'm not a detail person in the first place, and to go through all those details and then not have a satisfying conclusion was a real bummer! The narrator was great with his matter of fact low bass voice. He was a perfect match to the material, but even he couldn't make something out of nothing. I don't recommend the book.
This story is incredible. The author has an inside view to the whole story. Living in California and listening to this, which was going on when I was a kid, gave me the creeps. Highly recommend this book
I really liked this book. It was informative and interesting. I am a little bit too young to remember the actual events going on but the book lays out the events in enough detail to make them interesting without being boring with too much information. Listening to this book made me want to watch the movie. I realized from the book that there are several movies based on these events, including "Dirty Harry." Overall, a great listen and I would recommend it to anyone interested in true crime stories.
Barely interesting. It's a long recitation of incidents with no story arc. (I realize it's nonfiction, but it's pretty much just one thing after another.) The narrator has a nice voice but just reads; different characters don't have different voices. I was lured to read the book because I really enjoyed the movie of a few years ago, but it is very different.
The only reason I'm not rating it 2's overall is that a 2 for me means that I really dislike the book and my response to this was milder than that.
The Zodiac story is interesting but this author distorts a lot of the information. Endless speculation. Reasearch this book on the internet before buying and save a credit.
I love books and animals.I enjoy all sorts of genres, anything from history to supernatural.
This is a great book about the unsolved mystery of the Zodiac killer. The author includes so much detail that the evidence and circumstance feels tangible and never dull.
The narrator has an amazing deep voice - perfect match for this.
Real life mystery fans will probably enjoy this book.
The detail in this book is due to the writer's close proximity to the case, which makes this an exceptional listen. This isn't a rehash of a crime story by some third party, it's a first hand account of what happened from the inside. I listened to the book twice, back to back, and I'm considering listening again. There's so much detail you think that the identity of the killer must be in there, somewhere. I thought to myself... If I just listen a closer next time, if I just pay a little more attention, I can solve this four decade old mystery.
No. The level of detail was sometimes mind-numbing and would be intolerable for a second listen.
The narrator was entertaining.
Having not read the book, I couldn't say.
The number and variety of suspects.
A worthwhile listen, but the sometimes excruciating level of detail was not really appropriate for an audiobook.
The story was bland. I love true crime, and I have read other books about the zodiac killer. This one is boring.
The whole thing.
